If there's one food item that never fails to transport me straight back to the days of childhood, it's good ol' crunchy peanut butter. Lathered with a dollop of juicy jam on top of a toasted bread slice, peanut butter was the chief ingredient in several of my favourite snacks I liked to feast on growing up. And I'd be happy to tell you that my love for peanut butter continues to be just as intact well into adulthood. Although to be honest, my reasons for feeling this way about PB have drifted away from sentimental and shifted more into the territory of nutritional. 


A balanced source of energy, a rich source of antioxidants, and a generous reserve of healthy monounsaturated fats, Peanut Butter wears different hats as a healthy hunger burner. And we'll tell you how to make the most of them all. To begin with, how about we shared some simple and straightforward snack recipes with Peanut Butter as the foundation, that you can whip up in a matter of minutes? Alrighty, your wish is my command!
